Ed Fringed – Back From The ‘Burgh

Verity Taster looks back at her Edinburgh Festival 2016 experience.

And so we wave goodbye to the city of the festival for another year.

We stayed at wonderful Linwater , a tram ride away from the most beautiful shopping street in the world, with the castle on the crag and Princes St gardens beckoning, and the National Gallery- Edinburgh puts culture and history and Art above all else.

My companions were Sasquatch and his Carer, and delightful company they were.
